I have always had this view about the modern education system: we pay attention to brain development, but the development of warmheartedness we take for granted.
― Dalai Lama
We heal our hurts and become more loving by learning to direct kind and warm-hearted attention towards ourselves. Author Kristin Neff says practicing self-compassion on an ongoing basis trains our brain in kindness. When we relax our body and quieten and calm our mind and emotions, we enter a profound state of rest. We are at our best. We feel confident and peaceful. And kind.
